Artists Network Italy Retreat

September 16 - September 21

Artists Network is proud to present Retreat to Tuscany, an exclusive week-long art pilgrimage to the Italian countryside where you’ll embed yourself in the natural experience and see it reflected in your artwork. Located on a nature reserve in the hills of Tuscany, Tenuta di Spannocchia is within short driving distance of Florence, Siena, and many scenic Tuscan hill towns, but isolated enough to enjoy the natural beauty of the local landscape.

Limited to just 20 attendees, you will be mentored by two celebrated painter-instructors—Thomas Schaller and Melanie Vote—toward the creation of your best work during intimate oil and watercolor workshops that will take full advantage of the gorgeous surroundings and rustic setting.

With Schaller, you will receive extensive instruction in site observation, perspective composition, and drawing fundamentals that will lead to the creation of inspired watercolor work that truly captures your time in Tuscany. With Vote, you will focus on capturing the specific allure of Spannocchia’s environment, exploring the landscape in a slightly different fashion by creating a Portrait of Spannocchia.

Taylor Sferra is the Event Director for all art and writing events at F+W Media. She’s worked for F+W media for five years working her way up from Conference Planner to Event Director. She has 10 years of event management experiences and previously held event positions with the Chicago Park District, one of the largest municipal park managers in the nation.
The program includes: All instruction, meals, snacks, and airport transfers. We are looking into covering certain classes at Spannocchia as well.
